The Building the Foundation for e-Mentoring course includes the important foundational topics that all mentors need, tailored for the e-mentoring experience.
e-Mentors need training tailored to their experience so they:
- Know what to expect when mentoring a mentee they may never meet in-person
- Understand the unique role and boundary issues that can arise in e-mentoring relationships
- Are prepared to meet and get to know their mentee
Online mentoring is the ideal format for e-mentors, because they should be trained in a format similar to how they will interact with their mentees.
